3DMark 06 is the worldwide standard in advanced 3D game performance benchmarking in DX9.0. 3DMark06 tests include HDR/SM3.0 graphics tests, advanced SM2.0 graphics tests, AI and physics driven single and multiple cores or processor CPU tests and a collection of comprehensive feature tests to reliably measure gaming performance. Default 3DMark06 settings were used for testing, so a resolution of 1280×1024 was used.
The overall score is no comparison, with the GSO outscoring the 4670 by over 2000 3DMARKs. The SM 3.0 score is slightly closer with the GSO getting 600 more points, but the SM 2.0 test has over a 1600 point difference between the two, again in the favor of the GSO. So, there is a clear winner in synthetic testing. That is the last of the testing, so now it is on to the final thoughts and conclusion.
